Student project on display at library
Dec. 19, 2013 – Salina Public Library collaborated with Deirdre Hoff’s Salina Central High School history students for a class project. Theresults of the project are on display at the library through Jan. 20.
Students researched four historically significant Salina buildings. The multiple objectives were to exercise sound research techniques, experience local history in meaningful ways, enhance respect for that history and to tell the buildings’ stories through creative and accurate displays. The buildings featured are Lee Buildings, Stiefel Theatre for the Performing Arts, Masonic Temple and United Building.
Students researched at the Smoky Hill Museum, Salina Public Library and talked with staff from the City of Salina Planning Office. They also visited each site.
